A limited number of locations designated by Residence Life may be selected as block housing. Block housing will allow a group of students to select a block of rooms during Room Selection. Using block housing, a group can select a block of rooms or a two-room suite using the best time block within that group.

Application

Since interest in block housing is typically high, we use an application process which will prevent students from waiting in long lines if there are not enough blocks for them to select. Students interested in selecting a block during block housing selection must complete the application below. Only one application per group and block size is required.  Groups can apply for mutiply block sizes.   The application is used to determine the interest in block housing. Applications, which will be available on-line on Monday, March 13, 2017, must be submitted online by 5pm on Thursday, March 23, 2017. Applications will then be placed in time block number order based on the best (or earliest) time block in a group.  The Group Captains for those groups who may be able to select a block will be notified via email where and when to attend Block Housing selection.

Substitutions

Once a block application is submitted, groups can make up to 2 substitutions to the block simply be emailing [[living]] with the name and student ID of the new person and the name of the person they are replacing. The deadline for groups to make substitutions is Monday, April 3 at noon.

Wait listed members

Groups can have wait listed students during the application period but in order to be eligible to select they must be reinstated prior to the block selection process on Tuesday, April 4.

Block Housing Locations (subject to change) - Blocks for 2017 will be posted after spring break.

Specific rooms for block housing will not be available until after Same Room Selection. Where possible, specific  room blocks will not be pre-determined. This will provide students flexibility on which floor they select.
